Traditionally made from wood or wood products, pallets are a versatile packaging material commonly used to transport goods from manufacture to distributor. As environmental concerns and international trade have increased, plastic pallets are becoming more common. These products have many advantages over wood, including lighter weight with no reduction in load capability, greater environmentally compatibility, and exemption from the ISPM 15 and IPPC regulations enforced on wood packaging used in international shipments.
Plastic pallets are constructed of strong but light plastic material, which significantly reduces shipment costs, especially air freight. These come in a variety of designs and sizes, and weight load options can range from 500 kg to over 5000 kg. Electronic equipment is very sensitive to static electricity, and wood pallets have been a safe option because the nails in the wood cause static to dissipate into the ground. Plastic can be more susceptible to static, but plastic pallets designated for electronic transfer have been treated with an anti-static material which alleviates this concern.
